‘Who’s Who in Corporate America and Academia’ here to woo sought after MBA grads and students

National Society of Hispanic MBAs brings more than 7,000 here for 17th Annual Conference and Career Expo

CINCINNATI – October 25, 2006 – Cincinnati USA’s world-class universities and a vibrant corporate community will be on display and among the nation’s top corporations and universities looking to tap top Hispanic talent here for the National Society of Hispanic MBAs (NSHMBA) 17th Annual Conference and Career Expo Cincinnati Oct. 26-28, 2006.

Providing the perfect mix to appeal to both attendees and exhibitors, Cincinnati USA has attracted record-breaking attendance for NSHMBA. More than 7,000 Hispanic MBAs and students, 250 companies, and 90 academic institutions will gather in Cincinnati USA at the newly expanded and renovated Duke Energy Center. Booked by the Cincinnati USA Convention & Visitors Bureau in April 2005, this event will bring more than 6,500 hotel room nights to the region. Previously held in Anaheim, California, Cincinnati was selected over Detroit for the 2006 convention.

“We are excited to welcome the National Society of Hispanic MBAs to Cincinnati USA,” said Dan Lincoln, president and CEO of the Cincinnati USA Convention & Visitors Bureau. “The attendee and exhibitor list of NSHMBA is a virtual Who’s Who in Corporate America and Academia – and we have them right here in Cincinnati USA. What a great way to showcase the region as a place to meet, play and stay.”

Strong support by the local chapter and community played a vital part in attracting NSHMBA to Cincinnati USA. "NSHMBA chose Cincinnati because it is vibrant and diverse with a growing Hispanic population," said Lourdes Hassler, NSHMBA national president and CEO. “The Cincinnati chapter of this group is relatively young -- established in 2003 — and no doubt will continue to grow stronger.”

The conference will offer professional development seminars, university marketing and finance case competitions, resume and interview clinics, and networking events. The Career Expo boasts sold out exhibit space and will take place in Exhibit Halls A and B from 9 a.m. – 12:15 p.m. and 2:15 p.m. – 6 p.m. on Friday, and 9 a.m. – 12:15 p.m. and 2:15 p.m. – 5 p.m. on Saturday. All sessions and events are closed to the general public.

The local chapter of NSHMBA has rallied behind the conference and organized the region’s participating corporations and universities on the Career Expo Exhibit Hall floor to form CinciPlaza. CinciPlaza participants will be co-located at the conference to showcase Cincinnati USA, and will provide information to attendees about the local business and education environment, as well as various community, arts, and professional organizations to help attract and retain talent to the region. The Cincinnati Ben-Gals are expected to visit CinciPlaza on Saturday between 2-4 p.m. as a show of support. For more information about CinciPlaza, please visit

To kick off the conference a press event will be held at 8:30 a.m. on Friday, October 27 at the Duke Energy Center outside of Exhibit Hall B (5th Street concourse), followed by a Ribbon Cutting Ceremony at 9 a.m.

The National Society of Hispanic MBAs (NSHMBA), headquartered in Irving, Texas, was established in 1988 and serves 29 chapters and more than 6,200 members in the United States and Puerto Rico. It exists to foster Hispanic leadership through graduate management education and professional development. NHSMBA works to prepare Hispanics for leadership positions throughout the United States, so that they can provide the cultural awareness and sensitivity vital in the management of the nation’s diverse workforce

The legendary Cuban trompet player, Arturo Sandoval performed on Sunday, Oct. 22nd, with UC's College-Conservatory of Music Jazz Faculty & Student Jazz Ensemble. It was a fantastic concert, with "Maestro" not only playing jazz classics, but also some of his own compositions. Few years ago some of us were lucky to see Arturo Sandoval performing with the Cincinnati Symphony Orchestra, and this time it was as great as back then. While Mr. Sandoval is known mostly for his trompet playing, very few know that he is also a great piano and timbales player, easily moving from one to the other instrument.

On Oct. 17th, members of the CinciPlaza, a collaborative of several world class companies and organizations headquartered in Cincinnati, had its last meeting before this year’s 17th Annual Conference and Career Expo of NSHMBA (National Society of Hispanic MBAs).

Dubbed “CinciPlaza (,” the local NSHMBA Chapter organized the collaboration as a way to add value for local chapter sponsors, and as a way for the Greater Cincinnati Region to get behind the conference and welcome NSHMBA to Cincinnati.

Cincinnati's Top Hispanic Media: Spanish Journal & Radio en Español (#1 Latino newspaper and radio news), Radio La Ley (#1 Latino Radio Station), Nuestro Rincon (#1 Latino TV Program), and MidwestLatino (#1 Latino Web Portal), are working together supporting the newly created VIP (Volunteer Interpreter Program).

The Volunteer Interpreter Program, or VIP as we call it, is designed to better serve the needs of our growing population of residents that do not speak English, or have a limited English vocabulary. It will assist Cincinnati's Police officers with report taking, and interviewing of victims and/or witnesses of crimes. While currently it will focus on Spanish speakers, in the future, the VIP will include interpreters for the many languages spoken in our community.

Currently, the VIP has a team of volunteers from various Latino/Hispanic countries that have been specially trained to assist the police department when they encounter community members with limited English language skills. We are all aware that many crimes and victims in the Latino community go unreported due to a fear, based on an experience in their past, or a fear of possible deportation or involvement of INS.

The above mentioned Hispanic/Latino Media will promote this program within our local Latino community in order to create a positive image for it, so our Latino residents feel comfortable in reporting crimes or emergencies by calling the 911 number.

We are seeking your assistance to provide additional outlets to help us publicize the Volunteer Interpreter Program. Also, if you would like to volunteer, please contact us (click here...)

On Tuesday, we had the first information briefing for Police officers at the Police Station at Hyde Park. We had a chance to exchange ideas with them and learn more about the issues they're facing. Some of the volunteers also accompanied police officers in the patrol cars to learn first hand about their jobs.
